Learning objectives

Prosthetic learning objectives

  • To describe the indicators for either a fixed implant-retained prosthesis (I-FDP) or a removable implant-retained prosthesis (I-RDP) in providing an acceptable outcome

  • To identify the restorative implications in the selection of the appropriate sites for the placement of two or more implants in an expanded edentulous site in the maxillary aesthetic zone.

  • To identify the clinical criteria and processes for a type 1A (immediate placement and immediate restoration) treatment approach to replace a single tooth in the maxillary aesthetic zone. 

Surgical Learning objectives

  • Describe post-extraction dimensional changes in the anterior maxilla for multiple missing teeth and the impact on subsequent implant placement

  • Describe surgical steps to minimise and/or compensate post-exraction dimensional changes in the anterior maxilla for multiple missing teeth

  • List the advantages of software planning and guided surgery for the replacement of multiple missing maxillary anterior teeth with implants.
